Stayed for one night, very easy to find. Very close to the zoo. Excellent and friendly reception, nice touch to offer a glass of wine on arrival! Room good, quiet and a good sleep. No issue with trains for us. Went to use the swimming pool and we had the whole place to ourselves on a Saturday night, which was very nice. Bar OK, but wish they didnt show sports on all the screens, not keen on the "sportsbar" type bar...
Breakfast overall very good, buffet plus eggs and other items to order from a friendly chef. But do not order the waffles! A nasty, microwaved, inedible soggy mess, with a cheap bottle of "chocolate flavoured sauce" appeared on the table. Avoid! Other than that a very good breakfast.
Overall a very good-value Holiday inn.
